Sunday Sips!

Sauvignon Blanc.  Crisp, citrus, and fruitful is what I’ve grown accustom to when tasting one of my favorite white varietals.  However, this Sunday I was presently surprised by a buttery, creamy Sauvignon Blanc that tasted almost similar to a Chardonnay, even the color was a bit more golden than the usual SB’s.   This elegant discovery was a Chalk Hill Estate Grown, Sauvignon Blanc 2008 from the Russian River Valley.  We picked this up during our Sonoma trip {here}

Since it’s one of the sweeter Sauvignon Blanc’s I’ve tasted, I decided to whip it out while decorating our lovely Christmas tree to put us in a sweet mood!  Nothing screams holiday spirit than a creamy, cozy, almost comforting wine whilst decorating the tree and listening to xmas music.  We also may or may not have nibbled on a few sweet pairing treats (dark chocolate and biscotti)!

Sip this wine to get comfortable or to go with a special dessert during a night of relaxation with close friends.

Salud!
